Japanese Street Slang PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Japanese Street Slang free pdf From "ai" ("love") to "zukkyu!" ("heart attack!") "Japanese Street Slang" details the roughest and rawest street language as it's used in Japan today. Here's how the Japanese really speak: the hustlers and high-rollers, the "anime otaku" teens and Tokyo yuppies, the gangsters and their ladies of the night. This is the guide to the kinkiest sex talk, drug slang, criminal lingo, popular text-messaging abbreviations, and more. More than just a guide to gritty and gross-out gab, this book includes witty mini-essays that trace the fascinating origins of many expressions and rollicking example sentences that reveal just how and where they may be heard.
